We recently launched the Auscare Mentor Project (AMP). It provides one-on-one mentoring for young participants with youth mentors who share similar passions, hobbies and interests.
Mentor services in the Shoalhaven, Wingecarribee, Wollondilly and the Illawarra.
As Auscare Support has evolved, we have looked to identify service gaps for people with a disability.
In August last year, we published an expression of interest calling for the community to provide feedback on a mentoring service we planned on introducing for young people in the Shoalhaven and Wingecarribee areas. We received a lot of positive feedback, and in November, we launched the Auscare Mentor Project (AMP).
What does a mentor do?
AMP provides individualised mentoring for young NDIS participants with youth mentors who share similar hobbies, passions and interests.
AMP gives young people the power to pursue their interests and develop their self-confidence and social skills.
Clients are matched with a mentor who will explore their shared interests in either the home or the community.
The mentor understands the client’s goals – what they want to achieve and how they want to grow – and will help them get there.
1:1 AMP services are currently available in the Shoalhaven, Wingecarribee, Wollondilly and the Illawarra.

Dungeons and Dragons at The Loading Zone
The Loading Zone recently opened its doors at Level 1, 58 Station Street, Bowral.
Like AMP, The Loading Zone launched in response to a lack of support services for young people in the Wingecarribee and surrounding areas.
Current services on offer include:
The Loading Zone is specially designed to appeal to teens and young adults with bean bags, hanging chairs, a sensory room, and a chill-out zone.
Full details of these services are available on the Loading Zone Facebook page.
This interview published by the Fold featuring Co-founder, Margie Tully, provides a deeper insight into the Loading Zone.
Together, AMP and The Loading Zone are working to empower great futures for young people.
